4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black body with a light brown head. Malty, sweet and strong aroma of chocolate, chocolate sauce, roasted malt, coffee and faint generic fruits. Strong flavour of chocolate, coffee and sweet fruits. Some very dark roasted notes pop up in the background in the long-lasting and moderate to light bitter finish. The beer feels quite sugary, especially in the late finish, without me being able to identify the moderate sweetness as lactic sugar. Lovely mouthfeel, it’s a full-bodied and creamy beer with a soft carbonation. Brilliant stuff!
